So this Friday, some friends are putting on a Zombie Prom. As my wife and I are doubling with our best couple friends, we came up with a theme. My bestie an I are both very into rockabilly. So we both found dresses that jive, organized our spouses outfits, now I just need some hair and makeup help. So I come to all you beauties. I need pictures for inspiration. PLEASE?!?

I'm looking to gain a few readers for my new blog, 'The Vintage Bluebird'.
Who you are: people, like me, who love vintage style, decorating, and antiques - but are starving artists/students/lovers of life, without a lot of money to spend on this passion.
Who I am: Rew! A poor art kid living in Boston, making ends meet by working all the jobs she can find, who dreams of someday owning a house full of antiques
What I do: I find all the most amazing deals on etsy/online for people like us, who love all things vintage, at prices we can afford.
What you do: Read my blog! Comment, share your finds, enjoy :)
So if you're interested, stop by and say hello!

x-posted to my own journal
Long story short, after years of neglect and busy schedules and losing touch with livejournal, I have refound and reclaimed my former community.
Livejournal has taken quite a beating in the past few years. It seems my community has been overcome with spammers and not very much communication. There goes the point of a community, I'd say. I would like to start things back up in here again.
So I wanted to start up somewhat of an introductory post. If you could be so kind, post a comment in this entry telling us a little something about you;
Favorite Vintage Era:
My Name is Alex.
I'm 21, I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I'm a graphic design student and I love the roaring twenties. I'm also a fan of the sixties (from counter culture to mod squad) and the soul infused disco seventies. I'm a graphic design student and I love designing clothes.
I'm going to start (at least attempt) to do a weekly round up of vintage inspiration pictures, in which I encourage you all to participate as well.
I'll be on the lookout for spammers and sorry folks, these rating communities have got to go.
I'm going to do a repost of the rules, just so everyone can no longer claim ignorance.
Thanks you guys, I can't wait to meet all of you.

Our third issue came out in October 2010, and we have a lot of fabulous vintage finds to check out...and do tell them Zelda sent you! The list is under the cut...( Collapse )
